Orthopedic:

After any type of surgery, increasing mobility is a top priority. Stiffness and loss of range of motion and flexibility can quickly result from lack of use. The weightlessness of the water reduces stress on joints and muscles, which allows rehabilitation to begin much sooner than on land. Our rehab pool features fully adjustable resistance jets allow for activities to be performed at different resistance and massage levels, increasing mobility in joints and allowing the individual to work at a comfort level. Pain is greatly reduced with our hydro-massage hose system.

Our variable speed underwater treadmill increases in .2 mph increments. Individuals may enjoy an individualized, comfortable pace while receiving all of the health benefits of exercise but without the joint pounding experienced on land. Walking in water helps to eliminate the fear of falling and/or re-injury.

Chronic Pain:

ph-lady_in_pool.jpgRelaxation is one of the most important aspects of controlling many types of chronic pain. Since it's often difficult to locate the source of the pain, living with chronic pain means dealing with extra stress and frustration. The warm water of the HydroWorx therapeutic pool brings relief by providing sensory stimulation to the entire body. The HydroWorx massage system allows for the position and strength of the jets to be controlled on an individual basis and provide optimal comfort.

Exercising has been proven to release endorphins to the brain while reducing pain and helping to heal the body. However, it's difficult to exercise, if you're in a constant state of discomfort. Using a HydroWorx pool means that even those suffering from chronic pain can exercise by walking or running on our variable speed underwater treadmill. This is possible due to the therapeutic properties of water. When standing chest deep in water, the body is 80% weightless, bearing only 20% of its weight. This weightlessness helps with exercises and movements that could otherwise be too difficult or painful.

Competitive Athletes:

The HydroWorx pool at Rapid Recovery & Aquatic Center can be utilized to push even the best conditioned individuals to a whole new level. Special strength and conditioning methods help maintain health and mobility. This occurs much more efficiently than traditional land exercises, without the necessary extra equipment and machines.

Our pool can also provide a supplemental training routine, while you recover from injury or a muscle strain. The buoyancy of water allows you to continue running on the underwater treadmill or strength building exercises against the resistance jets. This enables you to maintain your fitness level even when you are injured or your muscles are fatigued.
After a hard workout, treat yourself to a deep penetrating massage to decrease lactic acid build-up in overworked muscles. This is a great feature for overall pain management and recovery enhancement.

Whether you utilize the pool's hydro jet massage or one of our hands on massage therapists at Rapid Recovery & Acquatic Center, we strive to meet your needs!
